What’s Inside: Need some new Paleo Breakfast ideas or hosting a brunch? In this roundup of 12+ Paleo Breakfast and Brunch Recipes, there’s something for everyone — from muffins to bagels, salads and frittatas, oh my! Plus I’m including some helpful entertaining tips to feed a group like a pro.
I have a love affair with lazy weekend breakfasts or brunch and I really enjoy hosting brunches, too! Putting love into my food for my family and friends is one of my favorite ways to celebrate any special occasion or literally just… like, Sundays. Throwing a brunch party is a great way to do it. Whether it’s paleo potluck style or me whipping up a batch of waffles, big ol’ crudité board, extra large coffee pot, and an awesome frittata — it’s the BEST.
I also always encourage people who feel that FOMO from eating out because of dietary restrictions or allergies to just make their favorite breakfast recipes and brunch dishes at home, paleo-style.
That’s why I’m sharing 12+ Paleo Breakfast and Brunch Ideas today — to inspire you to have more fun in the kitchen with ease.
Get Creative with Your Paleo Breakfast or Brunch
The best part of cooking breakfast or brunch for a crowd is that you can totally customize it for who you’re serving, the occasion, or a theme! Keep it vegetarian (or whatever diet you and your guests adhere to), give it some holiday flair, make it more savory or sweet … the options are endless. These Paleo brunch recipes are perfect for special occasions, too, like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, Christmas, and wedding or baby showers!
Plus, you can plan ahead to make some dishes ahead of time so that you’re not stuck in the kitchen during your entire brunch or breakfast party. Menu items like waffles, pancakes, coffee cake, walnut loaf, bagels, frittata, muffins, and sausage patties are perfect for meal-prepping ahead of your event and warming up before serving.
Then, as your guests arrive, make dishes like smoothies, salads, drinks, and shakshuka so that they’re fresh and ready to serve.
Get water on the table, or you might forget to offer it.
Set the table before guests arrive.
Start baking ahead of time. You can make baked goods the day/night before or a couple of days beforehand so it’s in the bag (i.e. carrot cake, muffins, etc.) – and you won’t have a mixer/flour mess on your hands to clean that morning.
For things like waffles or pancakes, have that done before guests arrive. It can get overwhelming to keep track of it when people are there, you can make them a couple of hours before and store them in the lowest setting of your oven to keep warm. Keep them on a drying rack over a baking sheet so they don’t get soggy.
You can toss salads together beforehand, too, just omit the dressing until it’s time to serve. And just store in the fridge! Keep any soggy ingredients separate from your greens.
While eggs, omelettes, and frittatas can be made ahead, I feel they’re best fresh, so I usually leave that for last to pull out of the oven as guests arrive.
If serving alcohol, let them do it themselves! Have a mimosa bar with orange juice and champagne with glasses so people can mix it up themselves and get mingling. Mocktails are also fun with fresh fruit juice and sparkling water (or kombucha)!
If making smoothies, wait until it’s time to serve to blend them up so that they don’t melt or separate while coming to room temperature.
